The first $1000 system? Few people are going to buy it if its priced that high. The economy is still really terrible in the US and in much of Europe at the moment. If they are smart they would price it at $499 at launch, even if they take a loss.

That would be the point where I give the industry the finger and just play classic games, or free games like Dwarf Fortress.

No person should be idiotic enough to pay $1000 for a game console.

Yeah.

I mean, you could get a very good PC for that price, and do a lot more with that than a console will probably be able to do.

Unless the 720 has Windows and basically IS a PC that you can plug a KB+M into. Which still probably wouldn't be half as good for the price as building a PC yourself.

Actually if you adjust for inflation, The NeoGeo and the 3DO already broke that point. The NeoGeo launched in 1990 at about $650 and the 3DO launched at $600 in 1993. Both would run higher than $1000 in today's dollars.
